ample and interesting? description of that beau-
tiful tract of country, lying North of the river
La' Pla-ta, and known.by the name of ,Banda Ori-
ental, to which we beg leave to call the attention
of our readers.
We yesterday published a letter from one of the
proprietors of the New-York Daily Advertis-er, now
on a tour in England, giving a br:;f, but spirited
description of Literporl, Oxford, Stratford upon
Avon, and London. We this day publish a second
letter from the same- ourtce, giving a description,
pFrfectly fa phic and faithful, of one of the most
splendid exhibitions of which London can boast.
That overgrown city may well be proud of its pub-
lic charities, and especially of its charity schools.-
SSuch, a scene a, the one presented in' this letter,
hnast be but imperfectly conveyed to the reader, by
even the liveliest powers of description. The cor-
respondent of the Advertiser has done it consider-
able justice, and his account will be perused with
no inconsiderable interest, by every class of our
The fatal consequences of drinkinig cold water,
during the excessive heats of summer, have receiv-
'ed some melancholy illustrations during the last
Week. In Boston, the deaths from exposure to the
heat, and drinking cold water, were calculated at
from 25 to 30. One physician was called, within
a few hours, to visit 13 persons, who had been at-
tacked in consequence of drinking cold water. At
the request of the Mayor of Boston, the master
builders have agreed to abstain from labour, during
this warm weatirten, fiom 12 to .5 o'clock. On the
Monday, and Tuesday.of last week, the thermo-
meter, at its lowest range during the night, was at
783; and at its highest on both days, at 100, in the
At New-York, about the same number of deaths
have occurred, from the snme cause. On one day,
the Coroner took an inquest on 23 persons, most
of whom died from being overheated, and from the
effects of cold water. The workmen in that city
have been obliged to abandon their labour in the
heat-of the day. At Albany, 7 or 8 deaths have
taken place, in consequence of the same impru-
den'ce; amonst whom was Mr. Bennett, a teacher
The Boston Medical Intelligencer has created
some alarm, by stating a report that the yellow
fever has made its appearance in New-York. We
notice the report for tha purpose of expressing our
4 hope.and belief that it may be regarded only as
one of the idle rumours of the day.

the security, add, consequently, the prosperity of
the American settlers. We understand that a very
inconsiderable sum has yet been received from
the collections made at the recent Anniversary. It
is believed, however, that collections have been
made which will assist the views of the Society;
judging from the general approbation of its ob-
jects which has been expressed throughout the
country, and the spirit with which most of the
religious de-nninalatilvs ..have taken up the sub-
ject of promoting its views and increasing its
The citizens of Gorham, in Maine, celebrated
the 4th of July, by turning out en masse, and put-
ting up a-new frame building and out-houses for a
neighbour, who had recently'been burnt out. The
ladies of the town prepared, and supplied them
with refreshments, through this laudable work.
Very late from Key VWest..-A letter from otur
correspondent at Key West, dated 23d tlt. informs
us, that the Island still continued unhealthy. The
late law of Cuba, relative io Spanish vessels, had
completely paralized thie trade 'of that port ; no-
thing was doing there at the date of our letter, and
there was no hope of a revival of trade, unless a
repeal of the law alluded to should take place.
The frigate Constellation, Commodore Warring-
ton, was still at the Island, to sail in a few days,
destination unknown. The corvette John Adams,
Captain Nicholson, sailed the preceding week for
Lieutenants Barton, and Ross. of the Marine
Corps, came home in the vessel that bore our cor-
The new Hospital, erecting in a more central
part of the island, was about half finished. Tihe
Contractor for the Light-House had been com-
pelled to suspend his operations until next fall,
in consequence of the sickness of his men, when
the walls 'were about two-thirds finished.-Nor-
Captain Hall, of the brig Exchange, arrived at
Norfolk, informs that he was boarded, while at St.
Thomas, by an officer from the United States Ship
Iornet, Captain KENNEDY, and informed that se-
veral piratical barges had been destroyed by boats
from said ship, on the South side of Cuba. The Hor-
net sailed 2d inst. for Cuba, to touch at Porto Ri-
co--Officers and crew all well.
A Pirate.-A Dutch ship arrived at Havana
which had succeeded in beating off a piratical
launch with about 20 men on board, when near
Matanzas. The Captain reserved his fire until
the piratical vessel was nearly alongside, when he.
opened his broad-side and musketry upon them,
which killed 10 men, and wounded 2 or 3---the
wind being light enabled the remainder to encape.

A letter from the United'Staps Consolar Agent
at Port Spain, Trinidad, states that on the 20th
June, there appeared at his opcee Noah Gales, an
American seamen, stating him ~f to be the only
survivor of the schooner Rebp ca, George Chase,
master, of and from Baltimo with a cargo of
Hour, staves, &c. bound for nat port. On lie
night of the 7th June, when eideavouring to wea-
ther a point in the Serpent's Flouth at the Somith
West part of the Island, the schooner struck on at
reef of rocks during a thunder tormi, and in about
three quarters of an hour, we t to pieces.-The
crew consisted of.the captain, inate, and two sea-
men, lost: himself escaped fir)in the wreck on the
topsail yard, and gained the land after being in tihe
water two hours. Nothing/could be seen of the
wreck on the following manrtitg.
Sale of Shcep.-The Saxon Sbheep, imported by
Messrs. G. & T. Searle, ltere sold yesterday by
public auction, at Brightdn, by Messrs. Coolidge,
Poor, and Head. The niimber of competitors for
tlte purchase was large, nimny of whom were from
the neighboring .States; and the price fi;r which
the sheep weresol-d shows the high estimation in
which they ate held. The highest price given for
a single sheep, was four hundred and fifty dollars.
-Another was sold at $'425, attd the average
price of the whole, including lambs, we believe was
near a hundred and sixty dollars each. The pur-
chasers were mostly, it not all, gentlemen experi-
enced in the raising of sheep, and well acquainted
with their value. It may be presumed, therefore,
that these e hoiceanimals, distributed throughout
the country, will, in the course' of a few years,
have a material effect in improving the quality of
our flocks.-Boston D. Adv.
Another fatal warning against dressing small
children in cotton outer garments, was given to
our town yesterday morning. A fine little girl.
about eight years of age, was sent by her another to
a neighbour's house to obtain fire, and while in the
act of getting it, her clothes took fire, and before
assistance could be obtained, she was burned sc
dreadfully, that she expired in about two hours.

six feet high, of slender figure, his face sharp, and at
,all times pale, but rendered still more so by his recent
confinement. His age cannot be accurately stated, but
supposed to be from twenty-seven to thirty. The cir-

citizen for the utmost exertions in order to the re-ap-
prehension of him. Whoever willapprehend and deli-

And when I waneler, hIt me, .too, bnt gaze
Upon the spot where flowers spontaneous grow,

And let my ears-cars which are never deaf
To heavenly n.nsic's sweet, enchanting sound-

Or where the lark, with wide-extendid wings,
Rises to HeaV'n,a d showsher yellow breast,
A itf to kiss, or hail thle rising sun,
Pourt forth her songs to animate her young,
And fill their tender breasts Mith notes of joy:
Or wIhere the whistling partridge swells Ilis throat.
And tells his tale unto the listi'ning vale,
And the poor dove in plaintive notes deplore
Tie loss of his departed, dearest, mate;
I too must rove and rest me for a while.-

All charm alike the unpoetic ear-
I would not have an ear that would not hear
Tie voice of music, wheii in solitude :
I wou d not lav fte e'/e-ihLat.,wo'uld not dwell
On Nature's works w.th wonder and delight :
I would not have ;a tongue that would not speak
What irfason dictates, and good sense approves--
But amongg my wand'rings let me not forget
The thoughts thatstrike met on t.e river's shore,
Whene'er I chance to muse an evening there-
To look a nimoment oil tihe rolling Wave,
in all its pomp, and majes:y, adn, miglt,
That beats ;.gains: the rock, and then rebounds;
It tells me life is but a fea (tiul dream-
The li title bark wiich on its bosom rides,
Fearless andtcalai, as if but sporting there',
Shows me how man rides on the sea of life,
As if no danger hiver'd o'er his late.
'Thlie little bhark, 'tis true, may glide along,
1ann'd by the winds that play atontg its sails;
The happy crew may sing dheir clieerful songs,
And make e'eii Neptune hide his gloomy brow,
But still a moment may destroy them all-
The calm blue sea, convals'd by angry winds,
May, with gigantic, fury roll its waves
Against its infant strength, and dash it into
Atoms-lte helpless crew, by its restless powv'r,
Borne from the human sight, are known no ore,
But sleep beneath the waves on which they once had tode.
But man, proud man, unmindful of these fears,
Ma\ pass through life without a moment's pai :
Until the fell destroyer of his race
Marks him as his, and slays him as his prey-
Oil dien he falls, a warning to mankind,
Wreek'd on Time's ocean, like the little bark!
These are the thoughts of meditation ;
Thoughts that to every breast should be endear'd,
And kindle feelings of the purest kind.
Life is a shadow Man is but mortal!..
Sometimes, a viper to his only hope,
Ht aimt his venoin at the virtuous heart,
And sells the jewel from the virgin's breast.
God offers pardon to his guilty sou I,
If to repentance he will bow his head;
But heads can' bow when hearts remain untouched :
Bitt, let him recollect, though said it is,
That on hib io: ehad are ensgrav'd Iese words-
Dust art thou, nutit, to dust slalt thou return."
These solemn words-the words of God to man;
That God before whom worlds are but specks,
And haughty monarchs, in their rich attire,
But mere woi an, tyrannic, kingly, wornits,
Loaded with guilt, with .infamy and sin-,
Tell to mankind the course they should pursue,
Ere tld last trump, whose hoarse, tremendous soand,
Louader tl:min thunder, will convuelse the eartI,
Break open graves, and call the dead to life-
Were I HERACLITUS, whlo often wept
For mankind's sake..I could not feel the more.
The heart that cannot feel, must curse !
The soul that has no friend, must perish!
Ieaven once wept itself; anti with is tears
O'erspread the earthll and drown'd the human race.
Save himt who was tihe tenant of the arlk,
And spread deep desolation o'er the earth;
Creating rivers, that the lofty pine
Might ride upon their bosoms and convey-
''he wealth of nations to far distant worlds,
Wlein'er another race should spring to life:
Tearing the bowels-ofourt mother earth,
And sweeping them with vengeance yet unfelt,
Until they rose and swell'd themselves to mountains.
roman wvheni e has sprung thy majesty, oh ALPS ?
Front whence, ihou APPENINES andlPynFENNEES,
Didst thou receive thy bitrh ? 'Twas friin Heaven;
It wept, and forni'd thee witli a flood of tears,
Which fell :o drown mankind, and sin destroy.
Alas! 'twill never weep again No, never,
But will an anger kindled into fire,
Will lay waste kingdoms, and o'erthrow
Mountains which stand as wonders of the age.

The North-Carolina.-We have seen a letter I
from a gentleman on board the U. S. ship North-'
Carolina, to his friend in this ciiy, dated Gibraltar
Bay, May 18th. The writer says they had a tine
run across the Atlantic ; and that the ship proves
to be a remarkably fine vessel, and much faster
than was anticipated, having gone eleven and
twelve knots without ll her sails set. It was be-
lieved generally on board that she would out-sail
the Constitution, and if so, would be the fastest
vessel in the service.
Governor O'DoNNELL,of Algeziras, had paid a
visit to the ship ; he expressed himself highly pleas-
ed with the appearance of the vessel and crew ;
Commodore Porter gave in a document, which, and, tendering his thanks to the officers for his po-
with the permission of the Court, was read by his lite reception, offered his best services to the Com-
This document, as will be seen by our report of
yesterday, contained the considerations by which
Commodore Porter had been induced to waive his
objections to the second charge and its specifica-
tions. It commenced with a general waiver of the
objections as i preliminary measure, reserving the
right to resume them in a general defence. The
document then proceeded to comment on the reply
made by the Jaide, Advoc,.te.
In this stage, the Judge Advocate took exception
to the document as being a reply to his argument,
-which reply was prohibited by the decision of the
'Court on ivMondny. The Court was then cleared
forridehbe a L"r n -,*u4l.... ...
On the doors btin- re-opened, the decision of
the Court was pronounced, by which (he different
paragraphs which referred to the rejoinder of the
Judge Advocate were stricken out. Tie reading of
the document was then concluded ; the latter part
containing merely a request th'atTommodore Por-
ter should be either furnished with a copy of the re-
joinder of the Judge Advocate, or should be allow-
ed access to the original on the records of the.
The Judge Advocate then proceeded to give in
the evidence in support of the second charge, in the
order of the specifications.
On. the first document being read, which was a
certified copy of a letter from Commodore Porter
to the President of the United States, dated April
17, '1825, the Counsel for the accused demanded
that the original letter be produced.
On this question, the Court was cleared'for de-
liberation; and %I hieu thedoors were re-opened, the
decision of the Court was pronounced, that no cer-
tified copy.of a letter was admissible as evidence.
The Judge Advocate then called on Commodore
Porter to produce certain correspondence which
took place between him and Mr. Monroe, late Pre-
sident of the United States, in the month of March,
To this demand ,the Counsel of Commodore
Porter put in a written reply, declining to produce
His reasons for this refusall were in purport as fol-
lows : The correp -. .ni-ce, between Commniodore
Porter and Mr. Monroe was private and unofficial;
and it was asked, by what inquisitorial power could
.private correspondence be called for ? By what,
authority could correspondence of this character
be made the subject of criminal charges ? How
could unpublished letters be made the subject of
accusation ? It wis contended that the Judge Ad-
vosate was bound to specify fur what purpose he
required the production of this correspondence,
and to show its relevancy to the matter of the charge.
It would be, necessary to do this;. and it would be
still further necessary that he should produce.from
Mr. Monroe his, consent for the giving publicity to
the part which he possessed of a correspondence,
which was guarded by all the sacred forms of a con-
fidential correspondence, before the Judge Advocate
could call upon- Commodore Porter to decide upon
the propriety of giving up to' the Court that part of
the correspondence which was in his possession.
The Judge Advocate then put in a demand on
Sthe Court for authority to, take the deposition of
iMr. Monroe, on the subject of this correspondence.
The Court was cleared for deliberation; and onthe
doors being re-opened, its decision was announced,
by which authority was given to the Judge Advu-
cate to take lhe deposition of Mr. Monroe, by trans-
'mitting to lim interrogatories, together with such
send his answers, made on oath before some neigh-
boring magistrate. ,
%The Counsel for the accused then put in a re-
quest that the Judge Advocate be 'required to fur-
nish to the accused a specification of the precise
object of these interrogatories,; and the point to
.-..vhicial y would be directed, in order that the ac-
cused might tie enabled-to -.uonrtatuxa t.o.git of the
change which was to be founded on this, correspon-
dence, and to shape his interrogatories accord-
The Court was then again cleared for delibera-
tion ; and on re-opening the doors, it was announc-
ed that the application of the Counsel for the ac-
cused, was rejected.
The Court thin adjourned till to-morrow morn
inn, at 11 o'clock.

ment of that Island ; and letters from Havana, re-
ceived this morning, fully corroborare the probabi-
lity of that event. In the latest of these advices.
'dated April 20th, it is stated as an unequivocal fact,
thait there is a decided unanimity of sentiment
throughout the island for throwing off the yoke of
Old Spain, and forming a union with Colombia. It
is added, that a Colombian squadron was hourly
expected, for the purpose of affording protection
against any hostile attempt from Spain. Letters
from Jamaica of the 12th, state the rumour of a
separation between Cuba and the mother country
to have been so generally. credited at that date,
that the ships of war on the Jamaica station had

corrections in the article headed Monte Video, in our paper of0

In the 2d column, where the writer is speaking of the Trea'-

This City and the adjacent Province hate been,
for the two last months, the theatre of wir, and,
0 was to have ben expected, public curiosity has
b ien excited. ;To gatify this. desire to kipw the
hisory of theiBanda Oriental, as the Projince is
no%called, the following sketch has been carefully
made from various documents. .
Passing oer the Bull of Pope Martin V. in
1432, afterwrds confirmed by Eugene IV.Nichol

Fortuguese prown all lands that should be discov-
ered by it's objects south and west of Cape Boja-
dor,. and di regarding the imaginary line drawn by
Alexander VI. in 1522, we know, that by the
treaty sig ied at Saragosa, in 1529, and ratified at
Lerida th year following, on the. parts of Charles
V. of Sp in, and John Ill. of Portugal, that a pr -
vious arrangement madeiat Phorderilhas, between
Alphonstis IV.of Spain,'and John II. of Portugal,
should continue, in force. What that previous ar-'
rangemq lt was)is nodtinown, as.the original docu-
Sments disappeared from the Portuguese archives a
few years afterwards, when Portugal was subject,
to the Spanish yoke.
It is, however, well known, that Charles V. int

d- .. not to settle on the north side of the river La
SPlata, as it was a Fortuguese possession. Cabot, in
consequence of tins, founded Buenos Ayres on the
*. south side of this river, in the same year.

o this/iver was,in those tinis, considered to be a
crt of the Pquguese donminions. It was also so
nsaldered wX6n Portugal was under the Spanish
oke tfrol/1580 to 1640; the Spaniards from
/Beenos Aiyres never having made settlements on it,
S/ a will be shown.
f / "When; by the treaty of 1668, after a war of
twenty years, the independence of Portugal was re-
cognised, the Portuguese, having been secured in all
their An erican possessions by its second article,
determined to settle some places on tltiir borders.
It was thlenin m1679, that a I-4iunuese fleet under
Lobo, arrived -rt thie Island olV.1r i Gabtiel, that de-
fends the port of Colonnia do SilNramcutto. Here
the Portuguese began t6 found a town, and to fortify
it. When the building of thilis town was known ai
BuenobsAyres, which is only separated by the river,
S '30 miles broad, it was immediately claimed under
the possession held by the King of Spain, when
Portugal was under her dominion. With this
quilibet in their mouth, and 3,000 Guarancies from
th, nri-n.-,il,-e', captured the place in 1820, killed
all thePortuguese, excepting sixteen, razed every
S, thing to the ground, and scut Lobo to Lira, where
be died in prison.

farmts sixty miles from tile city, and commerce with
brazilian ports flourished. A few years before tlw
war of Spanish succession, Prado, Gpoverntor of
'Btreios- Avres, fearing that the Dutch might estab-
: lish themselves along the river La Plata, applied io
SSebastian do Veiga, the then Governor of Coloifnia
to assist him against the invaders, and advised him
to fortify Monte Video, which was direct proof that
the Portuguese right to the north side of the river
was rfrcogaised by both parties.
In' tihe succeeding general war, this place was
taken possession of by Vulder, from, uelnos Ayres.
It'had been previously abandoned by Veiga, who
retired to Rio de Janeiro. At the peace. of Utrecht
it was restored, and Treitas was sent from Rio de
Janeiro to found and settle Monte Video, in 1723.
Lavalla, theri Governor of Buenos Avres, bearing
of this, sent troops against the Portuguese, wiho, as
they were few in number, abatund.oed the fortifica-
tions. T1he Spaniards theln, fir thi, first time, began
to build in this country. They were aided by the
Guarancies, comomandckd by their aown missionaries.
Thi-Court of Madrid continued to disregard all re-
monstranoes frqi the Portuguese Minister'residcnt
at that Court, .
Thesp-renmonstrances irritated both governments,
and -Sal&edo was appointed Governor of Buenos
S. Ayres, withll. secret orders from. the Court cf Ma-
drid. At his iitla.1. he invited Vasconcellos, the
Governor of Col.nauia, to settle thie bortdaty ilte.
This the latter declined, as he htad no order. As
war was expected, in consequence of the insuilth of-
ferred to the Portuguese Minister at Mildrid,by the
seizure ,f some of his servants in his own house,
Salcedo ordered the Portuguese to abandon all
their settlements ir the country. On the return of
his troops from Paraguay, whither they I, hal been
senrit to suppress a popular tumult, he declaited war,
and, by proclamation, ordered the Pdrtuguese to

Extract of a letter from one of the Proprietors,
dated London, MAay 31stf, 1825.
I have not been so much gratified at any thing
that I have seen since I have been at London, is I
was this day at an exhibition atit St. Paul's Church.
On Thursdayy next is the anniversary meetiu,. of
the Charity chihlren belonging to the various
schools in andi] about London. To-day the children
all appeared for rehearsal. I really wish you could
have been here. Temporary seats were erected
under thile dome of this great building, running from
tlte floor to the height of about twenty-five feet,
around tile whole area, representing a great amn-
plhideiatre. These seats were divided by iron rait-
ing or rods, running from the floor to the highest
hienches, so as to give to each school certain space.
Th le children were marched in line into the Church,
and to tile place allotted to them; the boys occupy-
ing ten or filieen benches from the top, and the
giils the remainder of lhe benches immediately be-
l,;w them. In this way were seated about eight
thousand childr,.n. The children of each school
were differently dressed: some of the boys were
dressed wholly in red, others in blue, light blue,
brown, grey, dun colour, &c. The girls were also
dressed in various coloured garm ntis fir frocks, but
all of tihi wore aiihite aprons, white handkerchii-fs
around their necks and over their bosoms, and white
caps with borders.; but every school was distinguish-
ed by a different coloured ribbon around their caps.
The whole of, the children wore brass badges of
five or six inches in circunif rence.-The whisper-
ing of these childer-te, amid of.,4.-spepctators, with
the noise of footsteps, caust d a constant roar in this
wonderful building, which resembled the roar of'a
thousand waterfalls, and struck me with astonisl:-
ruent. For the purpose of having a full and unol:-
structed view of this most sr lendid scene, I made
my way up to what is called the Whispering Gal-
leryv. which is about 160 feet above the children
,ind 'which runs around thle dome, with iron rail-
ings, over which a person can look upon the scene
below. I have no language to describe the scene
I looked down upon. Thle distance was too great
to distinguish the faces of the children. The va-
rious schools of females were distirncly marked,
and I can only compare them and th-ir movement
to rich beds of tulips, fanned by a gentle breeze.
Sometimes, when no motion was preceptible, tl.e
child en, of one school, would resemble an immense
b' spread, elegantly ornamented with various col-
ours, which their gowns, their white aprons, the
colout of the ribbon on their caps, and their faces.
would form. Looking in another direction, the
children appeared like so many hundred rolls of
cotton which had been carded and stood up in rows,
each roll having an ornament on the top, and when-
ever the whollo of thtm rose up, the motion appear-
ed as though the wind had gently bended over their
heads; and when they sat down, as if their heads.had
again become righted.
The appearance of the male children also had a
most singular effect. Sitting close together, at the
distance I n.ked upon them, each school appeared
ti lie one solid mass, and, varying from each other
in their dress, earh could be distinctly seen. They
appeared to me like laige squares of most elegant
fl',.'or cloth : their dresses, their white neck cloths,
(worn with so much regularity,) their faces and
heads, foi ming the various colours. The whole ap-
pearance of these children was truly deceptive to
thle eye, yet most beautiful. But when they all
sung together, and with such precision as to time-
that not a' discordant or misplaced notewas heard,
accompanied by lie great organ,-which is almost
immediately under thie dome, how can I convey to
you the effect of eight thousand voices and the
sounds of the organ, all ascending the. great dome,
upon my ears. It was deafening, yet so sweet, and
so full of melody, and so distinct withal, that every
word of the psalms was heard. The vast concave-
seemed ready to burst with the melody, which pass--
ed the gallery where I stood, and ascended to its
top, which is nearly four hundred feet above those-
from whom the music proceeded. Truly, such a.
scene as this I never expected to witness, but it was
my good fortune to be present, and never, never can
it be elTicred fromn my memory.
It was a considerable time afier I reached the
gallery, ere I could look over the railings upon the
srene below, such appeared the distance and so
alarmed were my fears lest by dilapidation tie rail-
ing might give way, and send me down upon tile
mass beneath. These fears, however, gradually
subsided, as I saw others, and females, standing in
crowds against the railings, but more particularly
as my feelings were moved and soon interested with
tile heavenly sounds, arising as though it were
almost to tlte very skies, from eight thousand living
voices, returning thanks to GAd for those great
charities which they were receiving through his in-
finite goodness and mercy. I remaitied until the
whole ceremony was finished. On Thursday it
will be repeated, when the Royal family, and the
nobility of England, will probably be present.
In addition to the children, there were from 4 to
6,000 persons pi sent. These occupied benches piec-
ed immediately under the dome on the floor in t!.e
centre of the children, and which run along one of
the great halls, or passages, the back seats being
elevated, giving the spectators a full view of the
whole. In the centre of these benches is a pulpit,
but not elevated, where the service is performed.
One person directs the whole of the singing. lie
uses so aething in Ins hand like ;i-tile, vhich lie ec-
seen ba "ttle organist in a tatiria)" netar the orIaan,
which directs him when to play. I shall endeavour
to get in on Thursday, if possible. The members
of the Church, &c. are allowed to eive a ticket a-
way, but the w hole number of citizens admitted is
snaill, in consequence of the room required by the
